The jury was out thirty minutes. The sensa- tional feature of tho day's hearing was the appt-araiicc in the witness box of the accused who after relat- ing part of his story broke down and with streaming tears and his decrepit feeble and bent-up old body convuls- ed with sobs, told of striking his wife several times with an 'axe.
